Announcing IFI WID 2022

Celebrating Your Selected IFI WID 2022 Theme “PRIDE OF THE PAST,  AN INCENTIVE FOR THE FUTURE”

We are excited to launch the annual IFI world-community project—IFI World Interiors Day (IFI WID) 2022. It’s time to take stock and to revel in our profession’s purpose and efforts to fill spaces with beauty and meaning.

Participate in IFI WID 2022 in whichever way is meaningful to you. Express and share your creativity. It could be simply to showcase your work, build a larger design-aware community, talk to your local government for their understanding of the relevance of Interior Architecture/Design. Or to deepen education, advocate for a cause, network, or celebrate the impact of our built environment on all human action and behavior.

IFI invites you to explore “Pride of the Past, An Incentive for the Future” and to share with your colleagues and the world what this means to you as a design advocate and enthusiast for your unique context and community.

This inclusive worldwide event is recognized throughout the entire month of May, and officially recognized this year on Saturday, 28 May 2022. Start your planning now.

About IFI World Interiors Day (IFI WID)

IFI WID, a longstanding IFI event, is akin to Earth Day. It is an annual opportunity for all designers and enthusiasts to globally unite through themed provocative celebrations – large and small. IFI WID causes public awareness, recognizing the value of Interiors and all who make built environments.


Celebrated globally, IFI WID invites design professionals, industry leaders, students and enthusiasts along with institutions, governments and members of the general public to organize activities and events that bring community members together to explore, learn, discover and create. Physical or digital, anything is possible. Address the young or old. Tackle new definitions for sustainability. Consider health, work, learning or rest. Plan a virtual ‘pub’ debate, round table or symposium. Collaborate across borders. Become an activist. Make a movie. Save our culture and heritage.

Your imagination is the limit!

We invite you to become active, to take advantage of upcoming IFI community opportunities for the development of our vital Interior Architecture/Design discipline and its connections, discussions and recognition. Your vibrant creativity and diversity give purposeful shape and meaning not only to the places and experiences we design and inhabit, but also to the heart of IFI. We look forward to witnessing your creative magic and for us to foster success together.

IFI recognizes that all people are equal across the world and that well-designed environments help to uplift humanity and civil society. It promotes equal rights and access to Interior Architecture/Design practice, research and education to be granted equally to all who wish to pursue it. This is regardless of race, gender, creed, sexual orientation, cultural heritage and socio-economic background, and not-withstanding disparities brought forth across different regional contexts. That good and quality Design requires to foundationally take into consideration these and other such evolving factors as technological innovation, globalization, economic and political instability and social inequality, as well as holistic consideration of the environmental/sustainable factors.
